    I have owned my 2015 GMC Canyon for over a year now. I came from a 09 Impala SS 5.3L. I love my truck but i was highly disappointed with the performance and shifting for a truck with 305HP. I put and exhaust and intake hoping to pull a little extra out of it, which it did but the shifting was holding the truck back big time. I finally decided to go with a tune. After checking out all the tunes available for this truck, I settled in on Trifecta they have the best performance numbers and the most customer reviews, not to mention there pricing is better than anyone else out there. This tune is amazing, I can honestly say I don't miss my SS anymore, the low end power this tune adds is exactly what I was missing coming from a V8. I went with the advantage tune, cause do not plan to do any more aftermarket parts beside the intake and exhaust which was on before I tuned it. If you even slightly considering it BUY IT you will not regret it, I spent more on my intake than I did on the this tune. This was the best $300.00 I have ever spent on any car I have ever owned....

    "As advertised" for my 2014 Sonic LT Hatch. From the new stock calibration to the performance calibration, this tune is very effective and highly refined. The stock setting is vastly improved over the 2014 MY OEM calibration, with more linear power delivery, virtually no intrusion of the OEM transmission control logic (are the clutches applied? let's see...), better idle quality, and smoother garage shifting (P-R-D-R-P). The switching to performance via the cruise control master switch brings the powertrain instantly alive from a standstill all the way through extra-legal highway speeds. The throttle response and shifting are crisp, while the refinement remains. It works extremely well with the K&N Typhoon CAI I installed. Rolling anti-lag in moderate city traffic makes for an effortless commute. Fuel economy is improved. The ability to go stock in the low-speed stop & go and switch to something more is a great feature. While it's not quite as fun as my 2013 Boxster S, it's made this little commuter car far more pleasurable to drive. Outstanding. Looking forward to a similarly effective tune for our company's 2016 Colorado 2.5L work truck.

    This post is far delayed, but I wanted to pass on that the install was seamless, and the results were excellent. The shifting was noticeably better calibrated than stock, the power / torque increase was obvious, and even the exhaust note seems more aggressive. I previously had an Audi A4 (2.0T) tuned by BSR - but the Trifecta tune has made me realize what I was missing back then. I'm very pleased at what you were able to coax out of a naturally aspirated engine. Keep supporting the Cadillacs!

    Just received my software and uploaded the tune. Feels way better than stock. I am one happy customer.

    The power this added to my 2013 eco is unreal these guys do amazing things couldn't be more happy with what I got for the money

    Everything I have read pointed me to this tune and I was still taken back at how much power I gained. I have an automatic transmission and breaking the tires loose takes not much throttle. It's made my car alot more fun stoplight to stoplight. I would recommend this to every cruze owner.

    The difference the elite tune makes compared to stock is mind blowing. I purchased the tune along with a K&N typhoon intake on my 1.8 since i had the infamous intake hose issue, and I HATED the sluggish throttle response from factor. It compliments the tune very well. Money definitely well spent.

    I purchased this tune for my Canyon and could not be more pleased with the results. I really like being able to choose between a power mode and an economy mode. I took 2 long distance trips and in the economy mode I was seeing 28mpg, that was all highway driving. A 50/50 split of highway/city I will see 21-22 mpg. In the power mode, this tune really wakes up this motor. Power comes on hard, and shifts are crisp. Mash the throttle at highway speed, and the downshifts are instant and the power comes on hard and strong all the way to red line. Also a nice improvement when pulling a trailer.

    I purchased this tune for my wife's 2015 AWD Encore. After installation I took the it for a test ride and immediately noticed a more responsive vehicle. Under full throttle the stock turbo engine had some turbo lag, and then the power would build slowly and you would accelerate. With the tune installed you mash the peddle, you now have a slight turbo lag and then power comes on strong, tires are on verge of loss of traction, and the engine pulls hard to red line. My wife drove it and was extremely pleased with the added HP, making it easier to jump out into freeway traffic. This is an outstanding way to give your Buick Encore a horse power boost.

    Car has been totally transformed and driving enjoyment is very noticeable. For anyone contemplating this, do your homework and make sure your expectations are realistic.   The tune will not make your Acadia into a race car, or tire burning monster. It will remove all the sluggish slop in throttle response and jerky shifting and allow a very linear increase acceleration (very noticeable). Increase HP/TQ is very obvious, and makes the car feel more like a V8.   The way this car should of been from factory.

    I was tuned on September 4th 2015, that day a car was transformed from a weak unresponsive commuter to the little engine that could (on steroids!!!) Now the second I was driving the car, a difference was evident. The subject car is a Bone stock 2012 Sonic 4 door Turbo. The throttle response is night and day, those who know the car stock, know how dead the pedal is, with this tune you press the gas and the car takes off like it should from the factory(you can even get the tires to chirp). The transmission tune is butter smooth and non-jerky, as with the initial ecm tune, the transmission tune just feels right. In conclusion this tune is a must for the novice driver to the pro gear head, its just gives the car that extra pep and fun factor without giving anything up or disturbing reliability or gas efficiency. In short the tune is amazing, and with out doubt a must for your little turbo Sonic!

    I had been looking for quite some time for a product to give me a slight boost in performance with no luck. No one had yet to make serious performance upgrades for the CTS-Vsport. Why? I had no idea, until I found Trifecta. I had heard about Trifecta tunes before but had never given it a shot. My car is running amazing now, throttle response has significantly increased, I can actually feel the power increase tremendously, shifts are smooth without too much of a jerk. Now it is on to the next level of my search for upgrades. No one really has a clue on what a Vsport is usually, so it makes for the perfect sleeper. Thanks Trifecta for all that you guys do.

    I installed my tune yesterday and it’s an amazing difference the way the truck performs. It pulls firmly up through the gears, which is pretty much the opposite of what it used to do, and holds you firmly back in your seat. It has taken me a little time to adjust to the accelerator which now only needs to be pressed down slightly to get it hauling Butt!

    This tune is awesome. It REALLY wakes up the truck and no more slow throttle response - it's instant now. It really fixes the gearing as well. I highly recommend it!

    I stumbled onto Trifecta by accident after reading a few posts online. Everything that they said is true about the performance or lack thereof of the new Colorado's and Canyon 3.6L engine. I was blinded by the flaws that my new truck had when it came to performance because I had the "new truck syndrome" after driving an inline 5 cylinder Colorado for years. I highly recommend buying the tune from these guys, you won't believe the difference it makes in the seat of your pants feel upon acceleration. I hardly ever want to use the cruise anymore to put it into ECO mode. I was sceptical about the entire process but after weighing the possibilities and what I received in customer service and the tune are far beyond what I expected. I bought the Advantage tune which solved all issues that I didn't notice while out for a test drive. Wake up your 3.6L, you won't be disappointed!

    I have a 2014 Maibu LTZ with the 2.5 engine. Being LTZ it has factory dual exhaust, and I installed a K&N Typhoon cold air intake on it. Before the Trifecta tune I was pretty happy with the car, it was a family sedan with teeth, after it feels like a sports car in a sedan body. The soft shifting has changed to snaps. The shift points are very agressive in moderate acceleration, if floored the shfit points are long and mean. It is fantastic! Better than I expected. It feels like a different car.   A friend of mine traded his Corvette in for a Jaguar F-type R and he was amazed with my Malibu. He actually thinks the shifting on my malibu is nicer than his $100K F-type. Obviously I don't come even close to him in just about everything else, but this friend was VERY impressed with what the Trifecta did to my "family car".

    Very happy overall with this product. Noticeable difference in power, shifting, and gas mileage as compared to stock. Very simple installation process as long as you understand to WAIT until the installation is finished. Took less than 30 minutes. Very simple to change from performance back to "stock" tune by pressing the cruise control power button. Excellent product and excellent service thus far. Well done.

    Installed my tune on Wednesday. Took a trip to San Diego. Unbelievable performance and mileage. In sport mode the truck is like a sports car. In eco mode I am already seeing 2 MPG improvement. I am so satisfied with the install. It installed in about 14 minutes. Noticed improvemnt immediately. So glad I did it.

    After about 2 months/3000 miles, I am thrilled with the tune on my 2015 Canyon V6. It gives the truck a definite improvement in in power, but perhaps even more significant is the transmission shifting improvement. It doesn't seem to hunt gears, and when you need it to downshift for a pass or something similar, you don't have to put your foot to the floor. Much better shift pattern and responsiveness. The tune is the best money I have spent on my truck by far.
